eyes, lips, revealed

it is spring. some bug has bit me, which in no way excuses the following…

eyes, lips, revealed

i have never seen so many eyes.
so many lips.

lips that want to be kissed.
eyes closed then kissed open.

eyes round. round and down.
into the ground.

eyes that want to fly,
fly into the sky. up.

doors closed are now open.
opened up.

a new smile is reveled.
and then removed [sigh]
such is life.

again [sigh]

so many eyes…
and then,
opened again.
and again.


Restructuring, Re: Generations.

re-generations I heard this album playing whilst sitting in Barnes & Noble (bookstore, yes they still have them). I was sitting in a comfy chair trying to decide which Seth Godin book would help me to be extraordinary. Make me sneeze-worthy or at least a sneezer.

First off I came to the sad realization that I’m as far from the sneeze as possible, I’m a laggard on the tail end of the curve. Okay no big surprise there. I’m also in a deep Dip. Possibly even the dreaded Cul-de-Sac. Aside from these woes I extracted myself from the coveted, extremely saggy chair and made it down to the CD department (yes they still have them too). I had to find out what was this music that was twisting “my kidneys free inside”.

Nat King Cole passed in 1965 but this is the first album of his music that I’ve owned, which again puts me at the tail end of the curve. However, this album just came out on March 10th, ah-choo! Thirteen classics re-mixed & re-generated into brilliant collaborations with great contemporary artists featuring Latin, Caribbean, Jazz and Hip/Hop styles. Also included is Straighten Up and Fly Right a duet with daughter Natalie mixed by will.i.am.

This album may not get me through the Dip┬ábut I’m sure grooving out
in the Cul-de-Sac.
